Return to the Introduction to Programming outline
This is a complex subject area, and I felt that the information was conveyed very well by Kevin. A lot of effort went into on-screen demos, that reinforced the learning. Presentation of course content and verbal explanations were delivered in a way that was light and fun to be a part of.

The course was very informative and expertly delivered, in a virtual environment. John was very knowledgeable and managed to keep a good pace, explaining things well, whilst providing lots of good examples. This course will prove invaluable back in my work environment. Thank you.

Fantastic trainer. The class was a mix of technical and non-technical analysts and everyone fully understood each and every part of the training - even though some sections were slightly harder than others. We were given ample time to complete the practical exercises and the trainer was really good and showing us where we went wrong (without making us feeling stupid). I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to expand their Oracle SQL knowledge.

lots of information covered will be beneficial for us back in the office improving the efficiency of our current sql scripts and alter the way we create new queries going forward

I thoroughly enjoy the Advanced SQL course and learnt a lot in the duration. The most interesting parts was learning about Oracle + REGEX and how we can use that to identify patterns. I will now incorporate that with my day to day usage. The trainer provided clear examples and explained sections very well, where we did not understand he would clarify further.

Great course material and the tutor was not only very knowledgeable, but also very willing to share his own experience and go the extra mile to ask about our own daily duties to try and tailor scenarios to help us more. Can't wait to progress through to more advanced courses.
Mitch - System Analyst - Postal/Distribution - September 2018
Really enjoyed it and learned a lot out of it! The instructor is a very understanding and explains everything very well using a mix of practical examples, self-tests and theory.
George - CRM graduate - Utilities - December 2017
The course content was excellent and met the requirements very well for what we need for our support team roles and activities in oracle SQL. The trainer was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable regards Advanced SQL and shared this well with good explanations, live examples and through our own opportunity to do the exercise online. The trainer also took time for us to discuss how we could apply certain topics to our real system support and also listened to our suggestions on which topics might be more useful, which was well received. Good course all in all and will be very useful and applied in work.
